In a pretty short amount of time, you guys have made a big name for yourself in the EDM community. What would you say your biggest accomplishment is yet?

If we had to choose one thing, it would be the knife party Remix, battle Sirens. We went in without the stems and got amazing feedback from the fans and a lot of djs and producers we really look up to. It opened a lot of doors for us, we’ve been approached by many producers for collaborations and Remix offers.

 

RIOT has collaborated with a variety of different DJ’s, who is someone you guys wish you could work with of you haven’t yet?

There many producers out there that we look up to and admire their work, off the top of my head id say knife party. Wonder what that would sound like!

 

What would you say the biggest difference in the EDM scene is when you play in your hometown of Israel versus playing in the US or elsewhere?

The main difference would be the popularity of the genre. Israel is a very small country, and that’s the main reason we’ve relocated to LA. Although every show back home is always special and unique.

 

What is one piece of advice that you would give an upcoming artist that you wish you would’ve known before entering the scene?

Try not to mimic trends, it’s always good to be up to date with what’s hot at the moment but it’s easy to sound like everybody else. Keep working hard on your own sound!

 

You’re known for coming from two very different musical backgrounds, can we expect some of that difference in sound to appear in the Underworld?

For sure, we’re all about keeping things fresh and diverse in our music and our live shows. It’ll be interesting.

We will guide you across the river Styx and through the many winding paths and domains of The Underworld! 

Descend into the dark lands of Tartarus, a place of bone crushing BASS and devastating drops where only the hardest dare to venture. 

Free yourself in the expansive Asphodel Meadows, a place of driving, ethereal beats and uninterrupted, hypnotic bass lines where the gathered host of party-goers will escape all perception of time and space.

Transcend into the Elysian Fields, where fast, pulsating beats and electrifying energy will stimulate your heart into a gyrating, shuffling state of exhilaration and delight.
